06:31 PM ET 12.05 | The Winter Meetings bring with them a blizzard of rumors, although the percentage of those rumors that actually bear fruit is tiny. For ten minutes the other night there was a surge of buzz as a rumor emerged about Cliff Lee being traded for Justin Upton -- and then it immediately died when we were informed it was nonsense. However, sometimes where there's smoke there's fire, so it's often worth considering the more plausible-sounding rumors and assessing their potential consequences. Even if a particular deal doesn't happen, rumors can give some insight into the various paths that a team is considering taking. Yesterday it was announced that Brandon McCarthy had met with a number of teams and that he was willing to take a 1-year dealin order to rebuild his value coming off of his terrifying injury. The White Sox were one of the six teams to meet with McCarthy. What could this possibly mean?
